Edible Evergreen Myrtle Collection

  • We have carefully curated a collection of our edible evergreen myrtles which not will be loved by you, but your gardens wildlife too. 

  • The Edible Evergreen Myrtle Collection contains one of each plant in either an 8cm or 9cm pot.

  • Luma apiculata - Chilean Myrtle (15-20cm tall): An evergreen shrub that produces masses of pretty, pure white flowers in mid-summer, attracting the bees and butterflies. The flowers have a beautiful peach like scent and are the most extraordinary looking with long, curling stamens on the older flowers. The cinnamon branches are sculptural and contrast beautifully against its dark green leaves. Our Chilean Myrtle looks great planted in the ground, placed in the conservatory or it can make a stunning patio plant. 

  • Blepharocalyx cruckshanksii - Heaven Scent, Temu (20-25cm tall): A highly fragrant, flowering, evergreen shrub that prefers a shady, moist spot. It will give you an unforgettable sight with thousands of white, myrtle like flowers opening in the Summer. Black, edible berries appear which give the plant a showy, ornamental look until early Winter. The fruits taste similar to the Luma’s. It has an almost arching habit due to the branches being pulled downwards under the weight of its foliage, flowers, and fruits. Orange, peeling bark is also a feature of the species. For optimum growth, the Heaven Scent is best to be positioned where it will receive partial shade, full shade. It can withstand temperatures down to -5c.      

  • Lophomyrtus obcordata - New Zealand Myrtle (Rohutu) (15cm tall, branched): A densely branched, elegant, dwarf like shrub from Australia. It has decorative, green- yellow, purple foliage with tiny leaves all year round. During the Summer, 1cm wide myrtle like, fragrant, white flowers bloom. Later in the year, Lophomyrtus obcordata produces edible black berries. Hardy to temperatures as low as -10C.
